i dont think there is any curse in playing batman, in fact it is a large opportunity for any actor. only george clooney was not in his peak when he played batman and still he gets a lot of attention regardless if he sucked. val kilmer and micheal keaton were already established and keaton still had strong films after batman, kilmer on the other hand did not do well, but it was not because of batman but his own doing. bale lastly will is still continuing to rise his stardom and he just won an oscars after batman..so there is no real curse.
